The Rainforest Biome Prezi
Transcript of The Rainforest Biome Prezi
- Very Humid because of all the rainfall in the rain forest
- It rains 250 cm each year
- 50% of it precipitation comes from it's own water
- Average temp. in tropical rain forest 80 degrees Fahrenheit all year round
Some Rainforest Locations could be found or located in Southeast Asia, the Pacific Island, and West Africa. There are some places in the world with some of the largest rainforests like in the Amazon River Basin ( south America ), the Congo River Basin ( West Africa ), and through out a lot of south east Asia. Also, there is a place where there are small rainforests are found like, on the Southeast coast of Chile.
- Rainiest, wettest land biome
- Very diverse, half of the Earth's species live there
- 77 degrees Fahrenheit , Never drops below 64 degrees Fahrenheit. The plants will die if it is cooler

Most plants live in the canopy. Epiphytic plants attach to the trunks and branches of the trees because they have water and minerals from rain and debris. A quarter of all insect species are believed to exist in the canopy layer alone. Many animals also live on the forest floor like snakes, jaguars, and cougars.
- Has never dropped below 64 degrees
- A temperate rainforest has two seasons, one long and wet, and the other is hot and dry
- The long and wet season's temp. is around 32 degrees Fahrenheit
- Short and dry temp. is around 80 degrees
- When forests are burned the opposite affects occur, carbon with other greenhouse gases let out into the atmosphere
Atmosphere-Rainforests lock up atmospheric carbon in their vegetation
Hydrosphere- Rainforests are mostly a self watering place, but otherwise the rain and river are the two main sorces where the rainforests gets its water
Geosphere- Rainforests contains mountains, valleys, rivers, and wetlands
The rainforest has lots of rain since it is very hot and wet. The water evaporates to the clouds and when the cloud is full of water the cloud lets the water go. Then, the water comes to the ground and the water cycle or precipitation starts all over again. Also, the rainforest is humid from all of it's rainfall. Humid means moist or a high amount of water and water vapor. This kind of climate is near the equator. Since the this climate is near the equator there it is hot because the sun is directly hitting the rainforest with it's sunlight. Furthermore, the sun almost all the time near the equator, shining it's beam of sunlight in the rainforest that are near the equator. In addition, there are trees that can reach a height of more than 164 feet. That is a fact about the rainforests near the equator as well.
The places colored in green are rainforests locations
Producers (aka plants) are eaten by primary consumers who are herbivores. Secondary consumers eat primary consumers but then secondary consumers get eaten by the animals at the top of the food web, the tertiary consumers.
There are different kinds of trees and insects in the rainforest. Some of the trees that you find are Coconut trees,Kapok Trees,and Banana Trees.Insects that inhabit the rainforest are Butterflies, leeches, and weevils, just to name a few. And together plants species and insects make up the rainforest.
One tribe in the rainforest is the Pygmy tribe. The pygmies hunted for food like most tribes. They also like to wear warm clothes so they won't get hypothermia. The Huli both hunt and grow crops. Men and women live in seperate houses. The Yanomami tribe is the last tribe. Their lives are centered around the yano, or communal house.

There are animals that can eat you like jaguars.There are bugs like leeches and mosquitoes that can suck your blood. Also, the snake can bite humans and venomous snakes can be life-threatening. Without shelter humans can face hypothermia when rain falls.
Can Humans Survive?
Humans can survive in the rainforest's conditions if they be careful. The only things that can be bad for humans is hypothermia and the animals in the rainforest. Jaguars and snakes can be a threat to humans and if humans have no shelter rain may cause hypothermia.
There are some positives or pros in the rainforest, such as trees to use for shade when it is a really hot day, especially when the show is filmed in one of the rainforests near the equator. Also, there are foods that the survivor could eat while surviving in the rainforest like, durians, coconuts, and bananas. Another positive is that there are many plants you can discover while the survivor show is filming. Lastly, there are lots of water near waterfalls and when it rains, so if the survivor gets thirsty during the show there will be a waterfall and whoever the survivor is can have a drink of water.
In the food chain producers which are plants are eaten by omnivores or herbivores so it is at the bottom of the food chain. The jaguar and cougar are two apex predators at the top of the food chain.
Items Needed for Survival
Some items needed for survival are bug spray if there is any bugs like an entire swarm of mosquitos. Also, the survivor should pack a hat during survival because you might never know if there are tree leaves you could use as hats. In fact, the survivor shouldn't forget to pack a hat because the rainforest the survivor is going maybe near the equator which is really hot and sunny. Another item to suggest is bring food and water if your area of the show filming has no food or water nearby. In fact, if your area has not even a tiny piece of food bring a lot just like if there is no water nearby. My last item to suggest for the survivor is some gear or tools the survivor would need during the survival task and show filming, like a first aid kit.
The Rainforest Layers
More Rainforest Animals
The four rainforest layers are Emergent Layer, Canopy, Understory, and the Rainforest Floor. The Emergent layer has trees growing about the heights of two- hundred feet or more. Also, the trees do not grow close to one another since the trees endure different conditions. In fact, there are only some insects, kinds of bats, birds, and harpy eagles. The Canopy is the second layer with trees about one- hundred feet to one hundred and fifty feet. The canopy is home to plant life and animal life. Some animals are spider monkeys, sloths, parrots, toucans, and orangutans. Most of these animals living in canopy usually get most of their food in the trees. My next layer is the Understory. The Understory is between the Canopy and the Rainforest floor. Also, it is dark since some of the trees are blocking the sunlight. In fact, there is only a small bit of sunlight shining in that layer. The Understory is also humid and has a lot of insects. Lastly, there is the Rainforest Floor which has one to two percent of sunlight hitting the upper layers of the rainforest and because of only having that much sunlight there is not much plants living in the Rainforest Floor, but there are a bunch of decomposers. The Rainforest Floor has animals too such as, jaguars, tigers, and okapis.
